A self-directed IRA is a unique investment account that allows alternative investments such as real estate, loans, tax liens and certificates, precious metals and more, as well as traditional investments. When you choose to self-direct your IRA, you take control of your future by making your own investment choices and open the door to alternative investments that can build tax-free or tax-deferred wealth in your retirement portfolio at a faster pace than traditional methods.
